Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"The preschool program is planned to provide opportunity for active and quiet activities. Interest centers are located in different areas of the room. Some are continuing, others are rotated and changed according to need. Children have opportunity for outdoor activity at the park across the street which is a grassy, wooded area with playground equipment. Children walk and hike around the neighborhood. The session includes individual, small group, and large group activity. Individuals may work at games, creative art media, or at various interest centers. Small groups work cooperatively at games, blocks, large muscle equipments, housekeeping, puppets, and other interest centers. Large group activity may include tasting experiences, movement, music, story, and game times. Each child has experiences in which he can progress at his own rate. The classroom materials are planned to provide intellectual stimulation through play materials, songs, finger plays, games, books, other visual and audio aids, plants and animals, and other first hand experiences. The program provides exposure to, and teaches awareness and sensitivity to other cultures.
The child chooses activities in a structured environment. He learns to solve problems and make decisions. He is offered tasks and experiences to develop his self-confidence and positive self-image. Intellectual development is fostered through experiences to increase abilities in problem solving, language development, concept formation, and sense perceptual acuity. Underlying the entire program is the concept of Christianity and God's great love for each individual child."
